The Ritz has obviously made a huge investment in this property. The pool was gorgeous and the room was one of the nicest we have ever stayed in - the front of the room was all glass - showcasing the vast ocean view. The bathroom had an indoor and outdoor shower and a soaking tub. The decor was monochromatic which allowed the views and room architecture to shine.
The food was very good. The pool side restaurant had very good food options (chicken or beef skewers, a lobster cobb salad...both nice alternatives to the burger and fries that were also quite good). Mi Casa had a breakfast buffet every morning but the breakfast favorite for our family was the Egg dish "like Jose's mother made" - try it, you won't be sorry.
The spa is huge and gorgeous. The golf courses were a big hit as well.
The cab ride is about 40 minutes, I would recommend stopping and buying staples such as chips and beer/liquor. The mini bar prices are outrageous. A small bottle of Belvedere was $75.
The staff was helpful. The only hiccup was that our rooms were not as specified in the reservation, but this was straightened out within an hour.
I would highly recommend this very special resort.
